About me

My aim is to help you overcome the difficulties that are holding you back and make sense of difficult emotions and thoughts. We've all been there: feeling down, angry, lost, or fearful because of work, relationships, anxieties, or the future of the planet - I will listen to your story. You don't have to be in crisis or have a specific reason for unhappiness: people often come to therapy for insights or a better perspective.

Give me a ring or send me a message. I will be happy to answer questions or arrange an informal chat, free of charge.

I offer face to face sessions, and both of my offices are sufficiently spacious to maintain a 3-m distance between therapist and client. I also offer online and outdoor sessions ('Walk & Talk' therapy).

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a down-to-earth psychotherapist with a flexible approach, combining person-centred principles with solution-orientated cognitive-behavioural techniques. I use a range of evidence-based tools to suit your personality and circumstances.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
